    My 1971 n600 restoration

    Wats up everyone I'm new to the site so any tips are wellcome anything that gains more knowledge. I bought my n600 about 3 months ago (march 2010) It's currently at the shop geting the head gaskets changed, chain, roller, tensionor also new clutch and steering rack rebuilt. Mechanic said later this week should be done, can't wait to rev it up!!

    Heres some pics getting home with the car.






    This is something I did due to the header sheild was all broken.

    Looks like a solid car, complete and running!
    I am rebuilding a n600, in Portugal, but my car was really bad, when compared to yours.
    Has for knowledge, I have the complete parts catalog and shop manual, If you want I will send it to you!
    I also have a very good parts supplier here, and he is a specialist mecanic in these cars.
    Be careful wile running without an air filter...

    With the air cleaner unit on it looks a lot better.
    Has for the dash, what is the problem with yours?
    I have an extra complete dash, with all the instruments and so on,the big problem is that the parts car I took it from had been vandalized, and the dash is broken in half, I am just keeping it for the instruments and other small bits.
    The dash on my car is ok, I just had the top "padded" bit upholstered,and now it looks good

    My parts man has at least one brand new dash, but Icant imagine the price...

    For most things, I do not consider his prices to be too hi, but some things are very rare and therefore are expensive, and the dash was surely an expensive replacement part, even back in the day...
    In my dash the upholster guy used a flexible vinyl and made the hole thing without any seams, so it looks close to what it was when original
